Sadly, it's probably a more stable source than cigarettes

Inmate tax proposed to bolster ER funds
Orange County supervisors are scrambling to find a new way to steer more taxes to fund overburdened hospital emergency rooms.

To date, they've been unwilling to use a state law allowing them to hike fines for traffic tickets. But Supervisor John Moorlach has another idea.

Tax illegal immigrants landing in Orange County jails.

Local activists were stunned by the idea.

"Truly inhuman," said Amin David, president of Los Amigos of Orange County. "I just can't fathom it. I thought I'd heard everything. It just doesn't stop."

Reading this article I'm torn between wanting to cheer for the great idea, cry over the fact that Moorlach seems to want to apologize at the same time he's suggests it and throw up in my mouth over the comments that the illegal alien apologists have made. Read the whole thing.

Orange County is a great place. If I am fortunate, I will be moving back there sometime in April. We don't put up with this BS in OC, and I am always disappointed to hear so many Oregonians bag on OC and So. Cal. We have problems, but your political problems are clearly much worse. I hope that some of the solutions found in OC to some of the problems there can be instructive to the socialist idiots here. Of course, I doubt it.

The problem is the socialists and the uber-progressives of Multnomah county, telling us how we should live our lives.

The government isn't a solution to every problem, it's part of the flippin' problem.

Another example of concrete action to control the illegal alien problem.

Another example of the illegal alien lobby objecting to any real attempt to get a hand on the problem.

"Enforce the law", say strong border folks...Open border, amnesty types say in response,"forget it, we'll win and legalization will happen anyway."

Local action is key at this point to send a strong message to Washington D.C. that national action to enforce the law is critical.

Keep pushing down in Salem to toughen Oregon's laws.

Hope the rally goes great, and sends a strong message.
